Notes 
 Per-game output is incredible, as his two-man numbers with James Harden. Injuries are the only thing you may have to worry about, as well as him taking fewer threes.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
That trade is looking better and better for Orlando. He's declining offensively and is the third option on Chicago.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 For most of the regular season, Joel Embiid was the clear betting favorite for MVP. The 28 year old Philadelphia center led the league in scoring at 30.6 PPG, while ranking fifth with 11.7 rebounds per game. Embiid averaged the most free-throw attempts per game (11.8), while shooting an impressive 81.4 percent from the foul line. Embiid brings 2.6 blocks/steals per game and ranked third in PER (Player Efficiency Rating) behind only Jokic and Antetokounmpo.
Mike Randle - FTN
Nikola Vucevic saw a predictable drop in his points per game last season, sharing the scoring load with newly-acquired DeMar DeRozan. Vucevic posted a solid 17.6 PPG and 11.0 RPG, while contributing one block/one steal per game. This is his appropriate ranking, unless LaVine is traded. A solid and reliable fantasy center option.
